- Use Freezer Paper Templates
- Trace the circle separately with a pencil on the matte side of your freezer paper.
- Cut out the freezer paper template on the pencil line.
- Iron the template to the neutral wool pieces placing the shiny side of your freezer paper towards the wool.
- Cut out the wool appliqué circles exactly the same size as the template.
- Using your small appliqué pins, pin the circles to the background.
- Please do not use a fusible to attach the wool circles.
Wool Appliqué Instructions
- Use Ellana wool thread and a #24 Chenille needle to whipstitch the wool circles to the background.
- Using a small whipstitch, match the color of the thread to the circle color.
- My stitch is usually an 1/8th of an inch deep and 1/8th of an inch apart.
- These stitches are parallel to each other and perpendicular to the edge.
- I use an 18” length of thread with a quilters knot in the end.
